"Byte" size math and tech info at MXR
I've listed several resources below that I mentioned during data meetings. These resources are great for ALL of your kids, but some of them are great for stretching the thinking of your high kids even deeper. I've also included Prodigy Math, which I just heard about on Monday. As always, don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions!
Illustrative Mathematics (grades k-high school)
Open Middle (grades k-high school)
I have included examples of a 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade problem below.
Prodigy Math (Grades 1-8)
If any of you use it or try it and really like it, let me know so I can come watch and check it out!
I mentioned during last week's data meetings that they have updated the flipbooks, so I'm including the link to them below. You will notice that the standards are highlighted green, yellow, or blue. Although we teach every standard, some standards demand more time during the school year because they are part of the "major work" of the grade level. Those are coded green. The additional and supporting standards are still important and have to be mastered; however, they work together to support the major (green) standards. (If you attended the AMSTI pacing guide workshop this summer, you remember that this is how your grade level's pacing guide was created and why it is color coded.)
